October has been (and will continue to be) a busy month!

808-leonardOn the personal side, tennis leagues are in full swing, football is everywhere, the AIA Homes Tour just wrapped up last weekend, we’re headed to Houston for JR’s 20th Rice University reunion, and we’re preparing to move in to our new home next week! Our remodel is not yet complete unfortunately (we still have the kitchen to tackle, and the cabinetry in the master bath), but what is done looks amazing and the house is completely livable. We’re so happy with the colors we’ve picked. The outside is bright and happy. Our across-the-street neighbor told us she cheers up every time she leaves her house.

On the business side, you’ll see a bunch of posts from me this fall about refinancing. NOW is the time! If you haven’t refinanced in a couple of years or are looking for some extra funds, refinancing now will allow you to take advantage of historically low interest rates. The FOMC continues to indicate that they’d really like to raise the fed funds rate in December, and realistically rates can only go up from here. If you’re thinking about refinancing but not sure if its right for you, check out my refinancing guide and case studies.

You’ll also see that my team is participating in Operation Gratitude – please join us in sharing your support for our troops, veterans and first responders.

Happy Halloween!
